Derek Prince – Bible Teacher

The theme of this teaching session is the new creation. This is one of the great themes of the New Testament, but it’s one that many Christians don’t fully understand and consequently they don’t appropriate all that God has made available to them.

ONLY TWO POSSIBILITIES (2 COR. 5:17–18 [GAL. 6:15])

So my purpose will be to teach you about the new creation in Christ. We’ll begin with 2 Corinthians, chapter 5, verse 17, and the first part of verse 18.

2 Corinthians 5:17-18: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself…’ and not read any further there.

Paul makes a very specific statement that applies to every person: if anyone is in Christ, the translation says he is a new creation, but the words ‘he is’ are supplied by the translators. The way Paul says it is more dramatic: if anyone is in Christ, a new creation! And you should have an exclamation mark there, it’s something exciting. If anyone is in Christ, a new creation!

And then he says a little further on: behold, that’s another word that introduces something exciting and dramatic. So this is an exciting statement. It’s not just dry theology. It’s an exciting and wonderful revelation of what God wants to do for each of us.
